Quietly, quietly drift the clouds

Far above Earth’s rowdy crowds


Parading stately across the sky

Painting paradise in our eye


Take a moment to gaze above

Fill your senses with peace and love


Imagine floating without a care

Our mortal souls are free up there


Beauty does our eyes behold

Orange, pink, and nature’s gold


Sunrise, sunset, and in between

Starry nights, a moonlit gleam


Dream along, embracing peace

Praying for all war to cease


Pure air inhale, life’s true incense

Live and love your truth…intense…

    • Thank you, Oneta! I think the pairs of lines are ‘couplets’ …most times they rhyme and have the same sound as Meter? Not sure…the words in the middle, I just put those in to show a contrast to the peace of the other lines. 🙂

  1. This was a beautiful and creative poem. I like that the headings in all caps make their own sentence if read alone and how they contrast the peace within the couplets. Very nice take on the prompt. Peace, Linda
